Serfaus Fiss Ladis is still perhaps a well-kept secret among freeriding fans, despite the area offering an excellent range of options. One glance at the trail map reveals an array of freeriding opportunities, with 10 different freeride routes spread across the ski area. These trails vary greatly depending on the orientation of the run. One of the longest routes is the “Kamikaze”, starting on the Zwölferkopf. 2,000 meters in length, skiers have to contend with a gradient which peaks at a startling 70% in places. Its south-facing orientation also means that conditions here are very changeable. If it’s powder you’re after, a better bet is the Skyline trail, which branches off the “Frommesabfahrt” run towards Fiss. Its eastward orientation means that it is frequently blessed with great freshies. The freeride routes and trails on Pezid (2,770m) and Masnerkopf (2,828m) offer up similarly impressive landscapes and plenty of snow to boot. In fact, the area is a powder lover’s dream if you are lucky enough to have had recent snowfall. “Feel free” – that’s what Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis likes to call is freeride and freestyle offering. The website www.feelfree-sfl.at has even been set up to offer guests lots of helpful information.
